Interior of the new Crystal Palace, Sydenham. Hand-colored lithograph
1854. Crystal Palace. Interior of the new Crystal Palace, Sydenham. No. 1. Hand-colored lithograph. London: Stannard & Dixon, 1854. 434 x 575 mm. Light foxing & toning, tiny paper flaw in blank upper margin, otherwise very good. Matted. A view of London's famous Crystal Palace showcasing the building's interior garden and fountains. The Crystal Palace, built to house the Great Exhibition of 1851, was constructed almost entirely out of iron and glass, and represents one of the more remarkable engineering feats of the nineteenth century. Originally located at Hyde Park, the Crystal Palace was dismantled after the Exhibition's end and rebuilt in 1854 in the London suburb of Sydenham, where it remained until it burned down in 1936. This print, evidently the first of a series, shows the building at its new site. Auerbach, The Great Exhibition of 1851, pp. 3, 193-95.
